CURE Childhood Cancer was founded in 1975 by parents who knew firsthand the heartbreak and fear of having a child with cancer. They set out to improve the odds for these kids and help their families face the challenge. Due to research, much progress has been made since that time. The survival rate for children with cancer has increased dramatically to its current rate of nearly eight out of ten. Best of all, researchers feel they will discover a cure in our lifetime. Until then, there is much to be done, and that is where CURE comes in. We believe childhood cancer can be cured. CURE's mission includes funding important research and providing support programs to help children and their families deal with this dreadful disease.

Amazing impact for innovative childhood cancer research. Creative fundraising, comprehensive approach to offset the horrendous impact on the broader family unit, totally committed leadership and volunteer team. Funds high potential innovative - enables breakthrough progress in an otherwise forgotten world of cancer research - cancers that afflict kids. Whoever wrote the negative post about the use of funds is way off base - go look at the 2011-12 use of funds - 57% direct to research, 31% direct to families, 5% to fundraising and 6.7% to Admin. You won't find a better organization to support.
